Why Dr Pepper is NOT your doctor

With all due respect to Dr Pepper’s long history of a soft drink with a unique flavor, the truth is that it contains only two ingredients which your body can make use of: water and 35 teaspoons (!) of High Fructose Corn Syrup (while these are nutrients, 2 green segments in the DyeDiet diagram, too much sugar is what kills today’s America).

As you see, the rest are complete bio-chemical strangers (4 red segments) that will only bring confusion to your system. You also will consume a load of caffeine, the world most popular psycho-stimulant (yellow segment):

Previously reviewed Dr Pepper cherry  is even worse choice because an artificial colorant and other chemicals are added.

Water is always a better choice. Of course, it’s very unlikely that you are going to get sick after drinking a bottle of Dr Pepper or Coca-Cola. I used to drink it occasionally in the past. But we should never substitute any soft drinks for water on a regular basis.
